SVS or Klipsch sub?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have noticed that when i look at some answers to sub questions most of the respondents list SVS subs in their setup equipment? I currently have two R-120SW subs and satisfied with their sound. Should my next upgrade be SVS?

I would love an R-115 and am sure it would be an excellent fit for my needs, however that is quite concerning to me as well....

He's also an SVS dealer!  Best of both worlds.

My 2 cents - 

I bought an RSW-15 around 15 years ago. It went out a little over 2 years ago (I have a thread on that here: https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/166611-another-rsw-15-bites-the-dust/

)

I had it repaired and it went out a month or so ago. I too was hesitant about buying another Klipsch sub - I did get excellent mileage out of mine, but recent reports on later models did not appear to be good.

I went with a SVS-PB16-Ultra. Besides moving it around (175 lbs) it is great. I am not an audiophile, I do not measure SPLs and that "stuff". It does seem "tighter", deeper and louder. I am very happy with my choice and SVS gives an excellent warranty.

 

Oh - BTW - I did fix my RSW-15 (this past weekend) - so now I have 2 a$$ kicking subs 🙂

Just don't have the real-estate to place 2 behemoths - yet.

I have a small listening area. At some point, I’d like to get a SB2000.

What I remember.   If anything, PSA or HSU would be better competitors.   Used velodyne DD series and rythmik (servo subs) would fit the bill nicely as well in the price range.

 A good site to check out is data-bass.com, when exploring new sub directions. All on the list are tested to their limits,  given short reviews, and you can compare one to another using the graphs, a nice touch.

The OP might not be interested in the price range but  "stupid" is inappropriate

I'd buy a Klipsch sub out of loyalty to the brand IF they offered a sealed model. SVS does offer a sealed version. The fact they specialize in subwoofers increases their appeal to me.
